Hey family! This week was long, but awesome! So, it started out on Monday and buying the tickets to go to Cali. That was awesome!
So on Tuesday morning with other missionaries we got on the bus to go to Cali. But, talk about the slowest bus of my life. But oh well, it was all good, chillin and talking with my bro and other missionaries was awesome!
We finally got to Cali at 1030pm in the night. We had to send all of the missionaries that were with us to their assignments to stay during the night. So, we took a good amount to the assistants house,
then with a lot of suitcases at 1045pm, we walked to the Torgersons house,
and had a quick dinner then hit the sack. It was awesome seeing them!
They are an awesome family.
SO then the next morning in Cali I headed to the offices of the mission
to go to the airport with my comp Elder Rivadeneria who is awesome to drop off a missionary that going to the mission La Paz Bolivia. Pretty cool! SO then
we chatted and stuff, had a good time. I tried to get a Tie from the people who work at Avianca but they didn't give me one....:( lol SO then we drove
back and went to the 2nd happiest place on earth.......you guessed it McDonalds! It was so good. We met up with Elder Lamareoux and another missionary.
SO then we ate and went back to the office and chilled waiting for the Consejo de Lz at 3.00 That was cool!! Talked a lot and had a good time. Overall was a success. Then we headed out and went back to the Torgersons to sleep and Celebrate Elders Torgersons birthday. Was grreat!! We had a good time, then went to bed and headed out on another bus at 8am.
We got back to Ipiales at 1030pm in the night.....wow, long!!!
But all is good. On friday we did some interviews for baptisms and stuff. Then on saturday there was a big Noche de Blanco and 13 people got baptized! Was great!
Then yesterday evening we had one of the most difficult and spiritual lessons in my life. The family we are teaching were fighting and things. But after a long time we solved it with them and went home to our place.
Overall, it was great with my new companion. He is great, and we are going to do big things here in Ipiales!!!
Love you all and miss you! -- Elder Tyler Welling
